Diagnostic testing

 

Diagnostic testing is an evaluation completed to assess a child’s overall functioning, which includes cognitive functioning, academic functioning, and social-emotional functioning.  The assessment is tailored to understand and answer a parents, teachers, and/or therapist’s question regarding how the child’s functioning is impacted by their thoughts, emotions, self-concepts and behaviors.  A comprehensive report will provide thorough recommendations to implement at home and/or in the school setting.

 

The psycho-educational evaluation can provide further information about:

  • Specific Learning Disorders (Reading, Written Expression, & Mathematics)

  • Attention Difficulties

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Language Disorders (Receptive and Expressive language)

  • Executive Functioning (academic success is heavily weighted by planning, organizational skills, working memory, recall, reconstitution, time management, and self-control)

Psycho-educational Evaluations

 

Psycho-educational Evaluations are comprehensive assessments that evaluate a child’s cognitive and academic functioning.  Further tests are utilized to provide extensive recommendations to understand a child’s strengths and weaknesses and assist the child to perform to their optimal academic level. Often, a parent, school, therapist, and/or tutor recommends a child have a comprehensive psycho-educational evaluation to better understand why the child/adolescent is not functioning to their fullest potential in an academic setting.  When a child/adolescent struggles in their academic setting, a thorough psycho-educational evaluation is recommended to assess various domains.

Ideal for:

  • Parents who have had an evaluation done by clinician who does not meet with school administration

  • Parents who have completed an evaluation with AMS Wellness and would like our team to meet with their child’s school

Advocate for Academic Accommodations

 

AMS Wellness clinicians can be an advocate for the family when parents are seeking an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), Individualized Catholic Education Plans (ICEP), or a Section 504 plan from their child’s school.  An AMS Wellness clinician will review previous evaluations (Psycho-educational or Diagnostic Evaluations) completed by a psychologist from another practice or by a AMS Wellness clinician, meet with the school staff and parents, and advocate for the most effective modifications to increase the child’s functioning in the school setting.
